Yes, Virginia, We Want to Improve Your MCLE

Updated April 9, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this process, and accompanying events, are cancelled until further notice while VSB staff focus on mission-related work. We will let you know when we begin the study in the future.

Over the next several months, the MCLE Board and staff will gather feedback from CLE providers to improve MCLE processes and policies. The feedback we gather will be used to improve the MCLE system for providers, and ultimately for all Virginia attorneys. 

CLE providers will have the opportunity to submit feedback and comment via email, an online survey, and in both live and virtual town hall meetings. The MCLE Board hopes to conclude the process by the end of Summer 2020.

A link to the online survey will be emailed to CLE providers in late March.

Save the Dates—and be on the lookout—for meeting registration information:

  • Online virtual MCLE provider town hall: Thursday, May 7, at 10 a.m. (CANCELLED)
  • MCLE provider town hall at the Virginia State Bar: Monday, May 18, at 1 p.m. (CANCELLED)

For a more in-depth report on the MCLE changes being discussed, please see the article by Supreme Court of Virginia Justice Steven McCullough and MCLE Board Chair Christine Poarch in February's Virginia Lawyer.

If you have comments for the Board’s consideration, please include your name and submit comments no later than end of business May 29, 2020. (No longer applicable)
